Preparations are now well in hand for the start of the club racing season which begins on Tuesday 25th April. However itís worth remembering that racing in HYC takes place all year round with a very successful Brass Monkeys and Laser Frostbite series over the Winter months.

It is with great pleasure that I can report the increase in our 2 largest one design fleets with the Puppeteers increasing their numbers to 30 boats and the spectacular Etchell fleet hot on their heals with more boats on the way.

There have also been many upgrades and new arrivals to boats in class 1, 2 & 3. Foundations are certainly in place for a very exciting 2006.

HPH system is to run again this year after a very successful season last year.

HYC are pleased to welcome back Sutton Cross Pharmacy as our sponsor for the Lambay races and Anglo Irish Bank for the Autumn League again this year.

The Challenge Business Round Ireland Challenge starts from Dublin on the 22nd of April with 6 boats competing with up to 14 novice sailors on each vessel. HYC are delighted to have been asked assist with the start of this very exciting inaugural event in Dublin Bay.

The hugely successful Adult Sail training course will run again this year with the first course starting on the 29th May.

I wish you all a wonderful, safe and enjoyable sailing season.

Fair winds and Great Sailing
